Appraisal Tags in PerformanceHub are powerful ‘snippets’ of information HR can create and associate with an employee’s appraisal. Think of them like ‘stickers’ that you can ‘put on’ employee’s appraisals and are only visible to HR.
Err, ok, so what does that mean? Well, you can use them for all sorts of things, but perhaps the best way to describe them would be to walk through an example use.
Let’s say that you have a talent management and succession planning process you want to keep track of. You already have all sorts of information in PerformanceHub about people’s performance, and you may also collect other data you can make use of through PerformanceHub’s “Appraisal Fields” feature too, but how do you bring it all together in a meaningful way? Well, that’s one way Appraisal Tags can help you.
You could define a set of tags for Talent Management and Succession planning.
- Flight risk
- Impact of leaving
- Ready for promotion
- Willingness to travel
Once you have created a tag, you can then create some values that tag could take.
For instance, the Flight Risk tag could have values:
and the Ready for promotion tag could be:
- Within 12 months
- Within 24 months
- Within 5 years
Once you have set-up your tags, you can apply them to appraisals. Why an appraisal and not an employee? Well, we thought that applying them to an appraisal would give you an opportunity to see how things have changed over time. Is Donald getting closer to that promotion? Has Theresa’s risk of leaving increased?
Once you have tags applied, then you can use them in reports and the distributions reporting tool. They fit neatly into the other reports PerformanceHub has, so you can answer all sorts of questions about your employees.
This is just one example of how you may use Appraisal Tags, but you could use them for all sorts of other things too.
